Norwegian Anders Behring Breivik (L), the man accused of a killing spree and bomb attack in Norway, sits in the rear of a vehicle as he is transported in a police convoy as he is leaving the courthouse in Oslo July 25, 2011. A judge ordered eight weeks detention on Monday for Breivik who has admitted a bombing and shooting massacre that killed about 90 people and who claimed in court to have two more groups of collaborators. Custody, in line with prosecutors' request, will allow them to investigate the case against Breivik, 32, an anti-Islamic zealot who has previously claimed sole responsibility for Friday's attacks. The custody can be extended.

Norwegian gunman Anders Behring Breivik prepared a bigger bomb at the farm he rented, Norwegian military sources said Wednesday. The sources said they found a bomb weighing 1.5 tons, while the bomb he set off weighed an estimated 0.95 tons. Breivik, 32, set off a bomb in downtown Oslo, killing eight, before going on a shooting rampage in the town of Utoya, killing 69 people. In court on Wednesday, Breivik's lawyer said his client tried to surrender before authorities caught him, allegedly making 10 calls to police—but only two calls went through because cellular service was overloaded. Norwegian authorities have set up an independent commission to investigate Breivik's claims.
